 Publicised data for our school displayed on the data dashboard should be treated with caution. It will not be possible to draw conclusions from the information displayed as youngsters have been given the opportunity to experience GCSE examinations on more than one occasion before the summer they leave school. We believe this is the right thing to do for our youngsters to enable them to be successful in their future lives.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pupil Premium Information 
Pupil Premium – what is it?
 
Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. The Pupil Premium is grant funding in addition to the School’s Delegated Budget and is intended to help disadvantaged pupils to 'close the gap' between them and their peers and to raise attainment, promote social skills and improve progress.
 
Children who are eligible include:
  • Learners who have been registered for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years
  • Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months
  • Children of armed services personnel.
Honywood Objectives
 
To offer youngsters a wide range of opportunities to learn both in and outside of the classroom.
 
To develop youngster’s engagement in learning and support them in overcoming any barriers they may have towards learning.
 
To develop a growth mindset in youngsters that will support them in becoming happy and successful life long learners.
 
 
Measuring the impact of PPG spending
 
To monitor progress on attainment, new measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of youngsters covered by the Pupil Premium. At Honywood, the usual cycle of data collection and the monitoring and tracking of the cohort’s attainment will be used to inform learner progress and enable the early identification of need, support and appropriate intervention.
 
The school will evaluate the impact on each learner termly. Evaluation will focus on academic grades alongside the acquisition and development of essential skills to ensure learners are able to learn throughout their lives and if mastered will enable them to be as successfully as they can be. Self-confidence and happiness will be evaluated as a consequence of interventions.
